With the increasing demand for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), rapid recovery protocols (RRPs) have been introduced to reduce costs and the length of stay (LOS). Little is known about the effects of RRPs on postoperative knee range of motion (ROM).
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) on the inner side of the knee is most often torn when there is a force that strikes the outside of the knee. The MCL attempts to resist widening of the joint and tears if the force is too great. When this happens, you face a recovery time of weeks to months, depending on the grade of the MCL tear.
